    Candies ‘n Curses is a great time, and has its hooks in me like any game with a fun upgrade cycle. The freemium stuff is pretty in your face, and the dual $4.99 IAPs to turn it into a more premium experience feels a little on the expensive side for what’s basically just a simple fast action arcade game. It also has some minor rendering issues on the iPhone X, with the game displaying some game data under the notch, but that sort of thing should be an easy fix. But, hey, for the entry price of free, Candies ‘n Curses is totally worth downloading.

    Candies n' Curses is a perfect example of meshing together the old and the new. It's as old a concept as any we've seen recently on mobile, but it's presented in the most modern ways. If this was an arcade game from the era it's aping, then it'd be a hundred times harder, and less fun. Instead you get a game that's all about the balance. The balance between failure and success, retro and modern, control and madness. And where it matters, it gets each of those balancing acts just right.

    Wish there was a more Halloween-y version of Downwell? Candies n' Curses might just be your best bet.

    Candies 'n Curses is fast, clever and fun. Its roguelike elements keep players interested, even if its lack of variety tends to be tiresome after a while.
